Over the weekend the recording of the annual Comedy Central Roast took place, featuring none other than Mr. Trouble Maker himself, Justin Beiber. The young singer had his fair share of jokes thrown at him by quite a few celebrity guests and friends amongst other popular comedians. 

         There were a few jokes that didn't sit too well with the crowd. Especially those that addressed the passing of the late"Fast and Furious" star Paul Walker. The jokes included one-liners poking fun at the actor's death. For example, "Move b**ch, get out the way!— is what Paul Walker should have told that tree." Afterward, even Bieber said he was offended by the Paul Walker jokes. When asked about the cruelest jab of the night, Bieber replied, "I didn't particularly like the Paul Walker jokes."

Due to the controversial nature of some of the jokes, Comedy Central has decided to cut the material mentioning Paul Walker.  

         A statement was issued by Comedy Central spokesperson saying,"roasts often push the limits of good taste and we give the participants full reign to try things, knowing we have the edit to shape the show." "Sometimes the line is discovered by crossing it," the statement read.

                 The 'Roast of Justin Bieber' airs on Comedy Central on March 30, 2015.
